Deemed and Out of Contract Rates

What does this mean?

Have you recently moved into your business premises and we supply your electricity? If you haven’t agreed a contract with us, Conrad Energy won’t leave you without power. You will go onto what’s known as a ‘Deemed Contract’.  Until you agree a new contract with us, or until you switch to a new supplier, we’ll charge you our Deemed Rates. As these rates are not fixed they may change at any time, but we will be in touch if they do. 

Out of Contract Rates

Out of Contract Rates apply to the electricity we supply after a fixed term contract ends. This is when a customer’s provided notice of their intention not to renew or extend their fixed term. We’ll charge you these rates until you agree a new contract or switch to another supplier. Please note that these rates are not fixed, they may change at any time and we will let you know if they do. 

You can find our Out of Contract Rates for all Network Operator Areas below.
